Pippin's colors

Pippin is a male American Yellow and he's about 6 months old. After his first molt he started getting blue feathers on his chest. Is that normal? Also when do they finish molting and color changes? I definitely thought Pippin was going to be more yellow. I'm not sure where the blue chest freathers are coming from.

Hmm...I have little knowledge of mutations, so not good answers for you, but that sure is a lovely bird you have there.

I'm like Malachi. I don't know about mutations but he sure looks like a sweetie.

Hi and welcome to the forum! I don't see the blue on his chest, just the blue on his back that male American yellows should have. My Tumi is the same mutation, but his chest is yellow with tinges of green in places, no blue. Maybe there is a pied gene or something? I don't really know much about mutations, but he is CUTE! Gotta love yellow boys!

It's in the first picture. You have to zoom in to see it. I just thought it was weird since it wasnt there before he molted.

Are you sure that isn't his wing edge? He's supposed to be blue there, as well as a back similar to Tumi's.

Given what you have said about the blue and the little white I see in the pictures I suspect that Pippin has some pied in his blood line. Possibly and American Yellow and an American White Pied.

I don't see blue either. Maybe grey? Like a down feather showing through? If he was pied... it shouldn't be blue, yellow parrotlets have white pied markers...

I zoomed in on the picture and circled his chest. It might have been easier if I had done that first. I just didn't know if it was normal or not.
